Steering Box Bolts Sheared Off!!!

Yah , just got my Jeep back from the deal ship and panel shop , took 3 months to find parts and repair. They did a wheel alignment too.
Drives a lot better feels tighter too. Probably cost more to repair than the Jeeps worth.

Steering Box Bolts Sheared Off!!!

Got mine back last weekend, Jeep supplied all the genuine parts & Wayne at Jeep Ford did the job because the local Jeep dealership didn't gave the skill set to carry out the repairs, drives great now & I won't have to worry about the steering box falling off again

Thanks Wally3218.
Looks like 3mm plate. Did they remove the spacer, or modify it ?

sorry for the questions, I'm planing preventative maintenance.

Bruggz351 not sure about the spacer will check when I get under the jeep , there was talk off still using the spacer.
Only problem I had when picking up the jeep was the noise the steering box made due to air in the system , now it's all good.

Mine has just begun making frequent "PING" or "CRACK" noises upon steering all over again...

Over this issue - I'm not sure what to do now, dealing with Jeep is nails on chalkboard and the last two repairs have bought me a couple of years max...

Gee not what I wanted to hear Hamsteh , your repairs lasted a couple years hope mine last a lot longer.
The only thing the Dealership did with mine was to take it to the panel beaters and have them fix it after they found the parts.
I would of loved to have found out how much it had cost, might of been more than the Jeep market value.

My 96 broke it's bolts on the weekend, plus pulled the top bolt through the chassis. It was halfway down a tight rocky track in the wattagans when it happened. Should I go through Jeep and try and get it done for free or would it be less painless to weld a brace in myself?
